"henry frick" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"Turning his business interests could continue to yield a massive income over the years and throughout his life he had always continued to champion the cause of the working man at least in word indeed the situation was not actually so rosy in eighteen eighty seven the same year that he married Louise Carnegie had friction with Frank over a labor strike Frank wanted to form a coalition with other companies to shut out laborers that wanted to strike cutting off their source of income but at that point Carnegie and not Frank had the controlling share of the company and he was able to force a settlement but this is really a temporary stay in eighteen ninety two another conflict between mill workers at the Carnegie own homestead steel mill and the management resulted in a deadly conflict that contradicted the image of Carnegie as a workers rights advocates the steel workers employed by Carnegie and Frank faced incredibly dangerous working conditions for very poor pay two years earlier in eighteen ninety steel revenues had started to decline and then in eighteen ninety two Henry Frick slashed workers pay and set out to break the steel workers union and Andrew Carnegie was not blameless in this conflict for one thing in anticipation of the union contract expiring Carnegie had told Frank to increase production so that they would have the leverage to shut down the plant if the workers didn't accept the new terms without losing any ground in their production schedule Carnegie was in Great Britain as all this was playing out and he sent word to freak that he supported Frank in whatever he chose to do Frank emboldened by this statement severely reduced the workers wages and the workers who invested so much time and labor and increasing the mills revenue even some of them experiencing terrible accidents in the process we're not willing to back down Frick declared that he would not negotiate with the union and he would only talk to individual workers the dissolution of the union was a point in the negotiations but just could not be resolved even after all the others were and then Frank close down the middle and locked out the workers out here at this point it was kind of like one of those situations where you know there's a company that people have been part of for a long time and they feel like they are not necessarily part owners of the company but like that they own they have a sense of ownership over what the company is in the culture and and that's really part of why these workers were so invested in this they were like no this is like our home we want to make it better and the workers actually tried to reach out to Carnegie but he was on vacation in Scotland in contact just couldn't be made turning he had wanted to do away with the union because they stipulated the need for more men than he wanted to pay and he left it to Frick to organize a new set up and he didn't think the maintenance of a union at the mill was really going to be the big issue that it turned out to be so Frank turns the mill into a veritable Ford's setting up a fence perimeter with rifle stations eventually he also called in three hundred men from the Pinkerton private police when the Pinkerton detectives arrived they were met by a full force of mill workers and a twelve hour battle began throughout the shoot out the Pinkertons were trying to make landfall because they had arrived at the mill on river barges but the workers were preventing most of their men from disembarking the Pinkerton forces actually tried to surrender for different times over the course of the day that this shoot out played out but their white flag was shot down each time in on the fifth try the surrender was finally accepted but the aftermath was horrifying with nearly a dozen people already dead the surrendering Pinkertons were brutally beaten as a crowd of reporters and onlookers watched the Pinkerton left homestead but Ben Fricke called in the National Guard so that strike breakers could enter the mill to start working martial law was declared over the mill and the strike breaking work force staff the mill basically up to normal production levels in a matter of weeks but the tensions in the town remained strike breakers were refused service in most businesses and they risk to being attacked on the street if they actually left the mill and armed organized attack on the fifty black families who had moved in to find work during the strike resulted in multiple injuries some of them very serious the violence that started with the Pinkertons arrival in July of eighteen ninety two finally came to an end in November after the union gave up strike leaders were charged with murder and additional charges were leveled at a hundred and sixty of the strikers but none of the men were convicted of their crimes initially Carnegie who had experienced the worst of the stuff going on while he was across the Atlantic Ocean kind of saw the union giving it as a victory he was at that point able to increase the length of the work day and cut wages as the mill re organized co strike to become more profitable but he soon felt regret over what had happened and particularly overseas how he had handled things in a letter to William Gladstone Carnegie wrote quote such a foolish step contrary to my ideals repugnant every feeling of my nature our firm offered all it could offer even generous terms our other men had gratefully accepted them they went as far as I could have list but the falls step was made in trying to run the homestead works with new men that is the tests to which working men should not be subjected was expecting too much of poor men to stand by and see their work taken by others the pain I suffer increases daily the works are not worth one drop of human blood I wish they had sunk yeah he really really pretty much for the rest of his life regretted the whole thing and his part in it well you've also at like simultaneously makes it about him yeah it was like the other men gratefully accepted these terms right well so allegedly and I did look at the financial break down but the terms that he had offered in other mills seemed like the man could potentially make more money but they would not be able to have a union and that was so important to them like to him it seems like of course everybody would want this I think it's just a union you don't need that but he didn't realize that that was a vital part of their well being as workers well the fact that they were working in a very dangerous environment for very little pay kind of suggest that they did beat the union right exactly exactly but to him you know I mean I think that happens in business all the time where sometimes people at the top of the food chain just look at it as columns of numbers and they don't think about like the actual human lives that are involved in producing the thing that their company makes or you know creating this environment where it's actually like safe and good to work so yeah I think it was kind of that situation R. but despite the horrific violence of the homestead strike somehow Andrew Carnegie's business interest survived and even thrived in some historians have pointed to the fact that the the striking workers became so violent that they lost a little bit of the sympathy in the public eye but his company Carnegie steel was out producing great Britain's entire steel industry just a few years later at the turn of the century by nineteen hundred and the Carnegie who was in his mid sixties was finally feeling ready to spend more time with his family in less time working in the we've had a daughter named Margaret after induced mother in eighteen ninety seven so even though he seems to genuinely love business he was also probably in the right frame of mind when the opportunity presented itself to sell everything he had J. P. Morgan offered to buy Carnegie out that year and after thinking the matter over Andrew Carnegie decided that it wasn't the time to leave business and begin philanthropy internist he had been doing philanthropic works prior to that but he decided it was kind of going to be a second career and so he wrote down his asking price just on a little slip of paper and he had an employee of his hand deliver it Morgan made no counter offer but immediately accepted the deal and bark and bought Carnegie steel for four hundred and eighty million dollars of that's Carnegie walked away with two hundred fifty million dollars the portion that went to Carnegie has been estimated at a modern values somewhere between four and five billion dollars E. yeah and that's one of those things sometimes you'll see it reported a little bit in a confusing way because since they're two figures involved there that four hundred and eighty million purchase price versus the two hundred fifty million that was Carnegie is out of that deal you'll sometimes see one or the other just reported on its own so I want to make sure we included both of those for clarity and right in the midst of the sell out by the way was the time that Cassie Chadwick was fading to be Carnegie's daughter in a massive fraud scheme and Santander Carnegie never really knew anything about that until it came to light during Chadwick's arrest and her trial which she did attend it didn't really impact his life it was not something he really thought a whole lot about other than being well I'm kind of amused about it but I wanted to contextualize its on the timeline since that previous episode about Cassie does mention Carnegie Andrew Carnegie spent the rest of his life trying to give away all its money in eighteen ninety two years before the homestead strike he had written a popular book titled the gospel of wealth in which he wrote about the duty of the wealthy men have to better the lives of people with less when he was intent on living up to that writing he focused on giving money away in ways that were enriching and would have lasting impacts yeah he was he did not just want to hand people money he wanted to figure out how he could build something into the world that would keep people in rich long term and is part of his philanthropic efforts he built a library and a concert hall in homestead Pennsylvania any set up retirement funding for the workmen under the Andrew Carnegie relief fund writing that it was quote as an acknowledgement of the deep debt which I the workmen who have contributed so greatly to my success he funded nearly three thousand libraries the United States and abroad the library where I get most of my materials for this podcast is in fact a Carnegie library he felt that with access to knowledge and a desire to learn anyone could become educated even outside of the formal education structures yes and that was really how he had become educated and become a successful person he thought like I want to give that Avenue to everyone who might want it but he also funded many actual formal institutes of higher learning so Carnegie Mellon University is the modern day outgrowth of the two million dollar endowment that Andrew Carnegie established in nineteen hundred to set up technical schools in the Pittsburgh area in nineteen eighty two he founded.

"henry frick" Discussed on American Elections: Wicked Game

"His first month in office Harrison had inherited an escalating international crisis in Samoa in the eighteen eighties. Germany Great Britain and the United States had established naval bases and coal rights in Samoa. Ophira harbor has served as crucial refueling station for their coal fuelled steamships and after a few years. Germany had to wrest control of the port from Great Britain and the US then in eighteen eighty seven. Germany had encouraged a revolt against the Simone King and tried to establish a puppet ruler in response to this foreign interference. Rebels led an attack on German forces in late eighteen eighty. These rebels killed at least twenty German troops and wounded another thirty. Germany threatened all out war with the rebel SAMOANS and any American or British soldiers. Who might support them in a show of strength? Lame Duck President Grover. Cleveland had sent three American ships to appear as a warning to Germany. Cleland's threat had worked. The German government requested a conference with US grin after his March fourth. Eighteen eighty nine inauguration president Harrison sent delegates to a meeting with European powers while the diplomats traveled to Berlin German American and British sailors and op harbor had continued to spar with one another. The conflict reached its apex when a massive tropical cyclone hit on March fifteenth. Eighteen eighty nine. The storm rift into OP harbor. The naval ships three German three American and one British should have sailed out to sea to ride out the storm but no one had wanted to yield harbor to the other party so they had stayed anchored in the harbour. This display of jingoism came at a deadly price. The storm destroyed or damaged all of the ships. Fifty American and ninety German sailors died this tragic loss of life cast a shadow of the diplomatic proceedings in Berlin. The sober delegates were quickly to resolve their differences and by June eighteen. Eighty nine to three nations had agreed to restore the simone king to His throne and established a three power. Protectorate this treaty and Harrison's role in it had continued the US on its imperialistic path. The president declared that the United States had entered a new epoch of international influence Harrison. Also worked to bolster trade with other countries protecting American interests and labor in the process. He wanted to leave a legacy of American prestige abroad and closer to home. Harrison wanted to keep his place in the White House come eighteen ninety two to do both Harrison strengthened and expanded the American navy and in early eighteen ninety one the president would get a chance to display his navy strength in January eighteen. Ninety one revolution broke out in the country of Chile during the uprising the US minister to Chile asked for American naval support to protect American interests. President Harrison asked Navy Secretary Benjamin Tracy to advise him. They sent several. Us Navy ships to patrol Chilean waters and intimidate the impressive US Baltimore sailed into Valpolicella so Chile and had the desired effect. One naval officer telegraphed Secretary Tracy that the arrival of the Baltimore on this station has attracted a great deal of attention and has also had a very good effect and increasing the respect of these people for our navy and showing them that the United States had the power to protect the interests of her citizens. Imperial European powers also took notice of American actions in Chile. Though a relatively small country Chile had a thriving economy and countries like Britain and France. Did a lot of business there. They kept a close eye on the outcome of the Chilean Revolution and America's involvement in it but when the revolution ended an incident between USA. There's and Chileans got the whole world's attention it's October sixteenth 1891 a Balmy spring breeze blows through the port city of USA Chile several American sailors from the US Baltimore saunter around ball patty so streets. Though the revolution has over an American interests are secure the Baltimore and her crew are still stationed in the Chilean port today. Captain Sleigh has given his one hundred seventeen crew members a raider shortly to crew members. John Talbot and Charles. Riggan intend to the most of it. Talbot and Regan along with a dozen other sailors walk into a saloon and dance hall called the Shakespeare. The proprietor does not welcome them. I'm closing up why it's early. We've got golden our pockets. I don't want your money talked at the town. Roughs mean to tackle you fellows tonight. I don't want any trouble in my saloon and get out the sailors. Do as they're told but aren't worried about the rumors. They're confident they can take on any Chilean street gang at three thirty PM. Talbot and ridden head into another saloon. The true blue meet up with a few more sailors. Talbot Notice Pretty Bartender. How about this boys a nice day a good beer and better scenery than I've had in weeks. Talbot's shipmates laugh. He orders another round for his friends. Just to get a chance to talk to the bartender. Then drink for nearly an hour. When Talbot and Regan's decide to head for a better part of town all right I've had enough of this lower quarter. Let's take a streetcar and see what else this town has to offer. I'll join you. Just give me a chance to talk to her. Wartime Wild Talbot Chats. With a young woman reaons exits the bar he notices. The streets are empty and rough looking man approaches him. I don't want any trouble. Well I do. We don't need any more Americans around here. Go Home Yankee. Just then Talbot exits the saloon. You seize the worried. Look on Regan's face. Hey what's the trouble here? This man wants to start a row with me told him I was just leaving. Talbot pushes his way in between his friend and the Chilean a shove off. We've got plenty more friends than you nearby. But the man doesn't back down he spits and Talbot's face and punches him hard in the gut towel it falls to the ground. We'll see who has more friends and in moments street is full of Chilean sailors. Ready to fight Talbot and Riggan decide to run for. They dash down the day. Arsanov HIDE IN AN EMPTY Streetcar Gang soon. Catches up a few of them have drawn knives soon. The two Americans are fighting for their lives while they're friends here. The finding come to their aid. The brawl lasted over an hour before armed. Police broke it up. Eighteen American sailors and one Chilean were wounded. Reagan was stabbed shot and died hours later. The sailors returned to the US. Baltimore and did not take another shore leave but the international debacle was just beginning President Harrison and Navy Secretary Tracy wanted Chile to apologize for this incident. They also demanded that Chile pay reparations to the injured sailors. This posturing sent a clear message. That Americans wouldn't be cowed. Harrison hoped to demonstrate US dominance in the western hemisphere and gain equal footing with imperial European nations. Americans had the navy and manpower to do it. A small nation like Chile couldn't be seen as getting the better of the United States but Chile did not apologize while economically. Strong Chile was not politically organized. It had just gone through a difficult and deadly revolution. The Americans impatient demand for an apology smacked of bullying German statesman auto. Von Bismarck was surprised that a nation as powerful as the American Union did not show more moderation and respect for a nation as small as Chile. That had just come out of a civil war and insisted in imposing on at the same qualities that they condemned and the riot but European sympathy did not extend to offers of military backing. Should war break out between Chile and the US? Europeans had noticed growing American cloud in the Pacific and were not interested in entering into a conflict. Another German diplomat told his Chilean counterpart that since the US was seeking the pretext for a war the Chileans would have to be careful not to give one. The Chilean Foreign Minister recognize the chew. I didn't have reason to claim culpability for the brawl which had come to be known as the Baltimore Fair but he also recognized that a street fight wasn't a reason to go to war so in early. Eighteen ninety. Two Chile issued a formal apology and paid seventy five thousand dollars in gold to the sailors involved. President Harrison was relieved by the outcome but he was exhausted from handling foreign affairs almost entirely alone as secretary of State Blaine was kept away from his duties by illness and family troubles leaving Harrison implementing policy with very little input from his trusted adviser and the situation in the cabinet. Wouldn't get better as the Baltimore. Affair Ended Secretary State Blames Third. Son Died and his fourth went through a nasty highly public divorce. The strain was too much and Blaine resigned in Eighteen. Ninety two leaving the president to his own devices on foreign issues president. Harrison's desire for a stronger military helped many American businesses across his term Harrison contracted with American steel manufacturers to produce the sheet metal and bolts for building navy ships demand for coal to power. These ships had grown and the military growth had also increased demand for shipping and railways across the country. Business owners had seen increased profits but they're laborers had not workers fought hard for better conditions and pay in eighteen. Ninety two a violent uprising. Silver miners in Idaho. Prompted that state's governor to ask Washington. Dc for military intervention railroad operators in New York. Walk off the job. Demanding higher pay and safer conditions in Tennessee. Coal miners also demanded higher wages and fought against the use of chief convict Labor. Some workers join unions to have their demands heard and in July eighteen ninety to strike at the Carnegie Steel Works in Homestead Pennsylvania. Got The entire nation's attention for two months Andrew Carnegie's agent Henry Frick had been negotiating with a unionized workers. They demanded higher pay and shorter hours. But when the talks broke down at the end of June frick locked the workers out of the nil. They began a strike freak hired strikebreakers but the strikers guarded the entrances and prevented frick from running the mill. Frick brought in Pinkerton detectives to disperse strikers and the early hours of July six. A firefight broke out between the well armed strikers and the Pinkerton agents the fifteen hour battle left at least eleven dead and dozens injured. What was the violence of the strikers beating Pinkerton as they attempt to escape and burning their ships to the waterline that turn public opinion against the strikers and their Labor 'cause the following day the Pennsylvania governor called in the state militia to break the strike within a few weeks for reopened the mill. He didn't Rehire any of the union workers and then he paid his new labour force lower wages than he had before the strike. The ultimate failure of the Union demonstrated how difficult it was for. Labor's to fight. The combined will of corporation and a government and so labor is lost faith in Harrison and his desire to protect their interests. They realized it was time to create a political alliance of their own one that would put their interests and concerns. I in eighteen. Ninety two. The labor unrest coalesced into a powerful third party that would directly challenged President Harrison. The pompous party..

"Welcome back to coast to coast AM Richard Serra coming to you live from coast, Toronto Canada affiliate in-depth radio. News talk. Ten ten Steve you my guest who murdered FDR when people put out these lists of the greatest presidents and so forth. FDR is often. On those lists right up there with with Lincoln, and Washington and Kennedy, of course. FDR is is one of those presidents that you either he either loved him or you hated him. And he certainly made a lot of enemies rate out of the gates. Let's let's talk a little bit about what was happening in America when he came into the White House, and of course, the United States at this point is is in mired in in our horrible, devastating depression. Like fifty percent unemployment in the Bank system had failed and just to paint that picture for us. How bad it was. It was pretty bad. You know, the president preceding Hoover and a roaring academy. Yummy. And of course, remember, remember the roaring twenties. Well, let me go, you know, you know, things were starting to. We're starting out starting to be able to afford luxuries in the country. Well, Hoover got in and fiddle with the knobs and levers and raised a few taxes and put some regulations on in here that fast, and you know, so here comes FDR, and he realizes there's a lot of people who are really in trouble and suffering. So he has this explosion of legislation in in order to help these people. And also he thought, and he did he did a great deal of helpful a lot of people we put people to work, and it was on the government the government paycheck. And this was the experiment from the communists. Communist part of the United States of America had already set up camp in nineteen nineteen in this country. Okay. So all of this information was coming through his friends in the communist party of the United States of America. And there's don't existence by the way, and they're near New York City. And so this was their idea. Of how to help the workers and the working class, and it was a flood of legislation were they just basically regulated everything from banking to basically, if you if you if you were able to take oxygen regulated it at that point everything from farms to banking securities act and all points in between. So this was done to put everyone to work on the government dole. So we can have this cradle to grave wonderful society that Stalin and the Soviets head fooled us into thinking existed new ideology, they thought that it was going to be this great thing where we were going to escape the the teaching valleys of communism. And you know, the government was in charge of everything and always know, wonderful peaks and valleys of capitalism. I think I think you said communism so the peaks sorry about. Pitfalls and valleys of of capitalism. You know, so right. If I might you because you you you you print the list of legislative. Actions that were enacted. In in who murdered FDR? Let me just read here and the emergency banking act. The government economy act the beer wine revenue act. The creation of the civilian conservation corps, abandonment of gold standard the federal emergency relief act agricultural adjustment. Act emergency far mortgage, Tennessee valley authority act securities act abrogation of gold payment clause, homeowners loan act Glass-Steagall banking act, national industrial Recovery Act, emergency railroad transportation act and the farm credit act. And he I mean, he did this really without much cooperation from the congress. Didn't he? He just basically rammed it through. I wasn't going to bore everybody. With that, Richard. I'm glad you did that I'm happy with it. I mean, it's just a laundry list. But it's just it gives you a sense because you mentioned, you know, that this was right out of almost like the communist manifesto that that he had the kind of control that Stalin had in the Soviet Union. Which is kind of an interesting parallel. It's very true. It was granted it was the Walt Disney version of it. But it was it certainly it certainly was the same basic control. He was carrying just like Stalin style. And just Persia all of his enemies. You know, if you got in the way of styling, you know, you ended up dead his first, two wives, his doctor who we told things to you know, he he just went crazy. The great purge was basically a show trials to put anybody to death that either disagreed with America challenging politically. That's how did it FDR. Did it by what packing the supreme court, right? What happened is my nineteen thirty six he had worried, you know, there was an election coming. So you know, he thought that people were getting a little bit weary of the new deal. So he came out with. Second new deal. It also wasn't working to the extent that he thought. Okay. So while all of this is going on in Europe is great war is brewing Hughes Europe's war. We're going to do our thing. We're in trouble. We're staying out of it. So if this was great a second new deal must be better. So. Nick starts implementing second new deal. And they start to realize that substantial portions were unconstitutional, so the he'd had to pack the supreme court to see if he could get it passed, and it was any he was really really fiddling with things. I mean, a tremendous amounts, and I know in the history books, this revoke say a lot of things, I know the history books paid him is this wonderful magical genie of economic success. He wasn't was an economic failure. People were they were surviving. And that was about it that was about all they were doing and unless we got into that war and started to move some goods and services. We're you know, we're we're still going to see in the new deal for until his death. I mean, it was it was it was a it was a guitar atrophy. How did he use the trading with the enemy act to to gain more power? Lend lease. This the trading trading with the enemy act. Well, again, when he did was he was just an attempt to bolster the economy in the same the same thing with the with the Lend Lease program, he was moving munitions and goods and services to defeat the axis powers, and he was getting into the into our allies, you know, free, France included, and eventually this is Soviet Union. So that we could win and they were just running up the cash register would be paid back later time. So there's you know, there's there's a lot going on here. I mean, he started. So he had to do that. Because you started to realize the new deal was not working. So there was there was a lot going on economically in in our country and their came to a point where he knew that we had to get into this war. Despise indeed in we have spies too. I know I know it sounds terrible. We do all countries have. I'm we have spies to spies in Germany or starting to tell us their finishing your heavy-water experiments and with the vizsla rockets to carry the nuclear weapons in the globe. We'd be speaking German right now. I mean, they were on the brain. So we had to get into this more for economic reasons. And for other reasons, so a great catalyst here. What's going on fascinating time in history scary time in history. So in the book, you argue as many. Have that that FDR new a Japanese attack on the US was coming? The only question was when. But then the question is did he did he sort of make it happen? Did he let it happen? Or was he just sort of glad it happened? I saw you in my book that I get the Irish probably the greatest war president we ever had. And that's because he just loved war. He did everything to make World War Two happening. I'm gonna catch flex for that. But you know, what the words too bad? It's true. All right. The Japanese were oil debtor nation, meaning they don't create enough oil to run what they have to do in their country. So they're getting oil from us. They were coming off a huge war with China. The last thing they wanted was to go to war against us. So they were trying to negotiate negotiate negotiate. And what happened was we shut off the oil spec on them. Which force them to go island hopping we'd already broken the Japanese communication code. So what happened was a civil war happened in Japan. Japan took over there. No wonder negotiating now, they're gonna take they're going to get oil by force. So it forced them in a situation that go island hopping. Okay. So that's what happened in the Pacific is far as Germany is concerned. And I'm not taking our enemies part. Trust me say as far as as far as Germany's concern, Germany is a food debtor nation meeting. They don't trade enough food to feed themselves. So we set up blockades around around Germany. So we couldn't we couldn't see them food. So you see these amazing photos of people in concentration camps, which is tremendously horrible. You know decision to watch my soldiers. Who is he's my president. Here's so that's the other side of history that people don't really get. We had already broken Japanese codes. I had a conversation about this with Oliver Stone twenty thirteen he came out with a series the other side of history. I believe that he he came on as for the exact same thing. And this book was was in the middle of writing this back. Then are researching at least did I do all my own research, and you know, he came up with his own resources substantiate the same thing. So it wasn't a matter of if it was just a matter of when it had to happen. And so again, did he let it happen? Did he well I part I suppose he was sort of they were priding the Japanese maybe cornering them a little bit. But how much foreknowledge? Do you think he had? Of the actual attack difficult to sell. I know they hit at least two weeks and all of this and now the aircraft carriers mysteriously went out of Pearl Harbor. So they were not at Pearl Harbor when the attack which is a little suspicious aircraft carriers tend to be a pretty. Pretty unnecessary commodity in a world like that. And every word actually, so they had to spare them. So they left the harbour if I'm wrong. Sorry. But I mean, I I can't imagine a situation where you would be taking aircraft carriers and ordering them away from a place that you're supposed to be protecting. So it was a pretty good evidence to support that, you know, the same to support second collusion that they definitely had. He's a matter of fact, the history channel broke it. I think last year I was watching something history channel, they even said, they had uncovered documents internal documents, which I didn't find the archive the suggests that that very thing. That's the codes were broken. And I saw. Wow. Hey, look at that. I knew I got it. Right. But I didn't know how right. I got it. So I was right on the money was right? But as you as you make great pains to point out, and you just mentioned this earlier that the Germans and their V T V two rocket program almost they were getting close to being able to deliver nuclear bombs and. Had the United States not gotten in. When they did it may have been too late and imagine nuclear weapons attached to those v two rockets raining down on England. You know, it's incredible. It's just absolutely incredible. When you think about the situation. You know, America's economic chaos. They know they have to get into this war for many reasons to spark the economy as well. And it was just in the he hid to FDR was putting a real bad situation. And you know, in the first chapter of my book is kind of a villain and a half to do that to set up the murder. So I apologize in advance for anybody who reads that gets. Juan FDR had to sell our country on this war. And I believe he had to sacrifice Pearl Harbor and alleged that I know it's a terrible thing to say. But I think that's that's how it happened in order to galvanize public support, right? Yeah. Because he he had already been saying this is Europe's were Europe's were well between the this the horrible economy, which is not doing anything and the necessary time to get into the war coming through our spies was he knew it was time to a very gut wrenching decision, very gut wrenching decision. So that's that's how that Kim's seems to pass before we get into the US in World War Two and FDR's relationship with hill. And then later Stalin just talked to me a little bit about the enemy's list that he had already cultivated through the overregulation and and with with the big corporations in the United States.

"When you think about the situation. You know, America's economic chaos. They know they have to get into this war for many reasons to spark the economy as well. And it was just in the he hid FDR was putting a real bad situation. And you know, in the first chapter of my book is kind of a villain, and I have to do that to set up the murder. So I apologize in advance for anybody who reads that and gets her tan. FDR had to sell our country on this war. And I believe he had to sacrifice Pearl Harbor and the and. I know it's a terrible thing to say. But I think that's that's how it happened in order to galvanize public support. Right. Yeah. Because he had already been saying this is Europe's this Europe's were well between the the the horrible economy, which is not doing anything and the necessary time to get into the war coming through our spies. And I was he knew it was time to very gut wrenching decision, very gut wrenching decision. So that's that's how that seems to pass before we get into the US in World War Two and FDR's relationship with church hill and then later Stalin. Talk to me a little bit about sort of the enemy's list that he had already cultivated through the overregulation and and with with the big corporations in the United States. Oh boy.

"S. Welcome back to coast to coast. Am Richard Sarah coming to you live from coast Toronto Canada affiliate in-depth radio. News talk. Ten ten. Steve. You my guest who murdered FDR? You know, people put out these lists. You know, the greatest presidents and so forth. FDR is often. On those lists right up there with with Lincoln and Washington and Kennedy. Of course, FDR is is one of those presidents that you either he either loved him or you hated him. And he certainly made a lot of of enemies rate out of the gates. Let's let's talk a little bit about what was happening in America when he came into the White House, and of course, the United States at this point is is in mired in in our horrible, devastating depression like v percents on employment and the Bank system had failed and just to paint that picture for us. How bad it was. It was pretty bad. You know, the president preceding Hoover had a roaring accounting. And of course, remember, remember the roaring twenties. Well, let me go, you know, you know, things were starting to. We were starting out starting to be able to afford luxuries in the country. Well, Hoover got an fiddle with the knobs and levers and raise a few taxes and put some regulations on in here that fast, and you know, so here comes FDR he realizes there's a lot of people who are really in trouble and suffering. So he has this explosion of legislation in in order to help these people in or so he thought, and he did he did a great deal of helpful a lot of people who put people to work, and it was on the government the gun route paycheck, and this was the experiment from the communists. Communist part of the United States of America had already set up camp in nineteen nineteen in this country. Okay. So all of this information was coming through his friends in the communist party of the United States of America, and they're still in existence, by the way near New York City. And so this was their idea. Of how to help the workers and the working class, and it was a flood of legislation were they just basically regulated everything from banking to basically if you if you were able to take oxygen SEI regulated at that point everything from Samsa banking. It's it's the securities act can all points in between. So this was done to put everyone to work on the government dole. So we can have this cradle to grave wonderful society that Stalin and the Soviet head fooled us into thinking existed new ideology, they thought that it was going to be this great thing where we were going to escape the the peaks and valleys of communism and know, the government was in charge of everything and always know, wonderful peaks and valleys of capitalism. I think I think you said communism so the peaks sorry about. Pitfalls and valleys of of capitalism. You know, so right. If I might you because you you you you print the list of legislative. Actions that were enacted in in who murdered FDR. Let me just read here and the emergency banking act. The government economy act the beer wine revenue act. The creation of the civilian conservation corps, abandonment of gold standard the federal emergency relief act agricultural adjustment act emergency far mortgage, Tennessee valley authority act securities act abrogation of gold payment clause homeowners loan act glass banking act, national industrial Recovery Act, emergency railroad transportation act and the farm credit act. And he I mean, he did this really without much cooperation from the congress. Didn't he? He just basically rammed it through. I wasn't going to bore everybody. With that, Richard. I'm glad you did that I'm happy to bore them with it. I mean, it's just a laundry list. But it's just it gives you a sense because you mentioned, you know, that this was rate out of almost like the communist manifesto that that he had the kind of control that Stalin had in the Soviet Union, which is kind of an interesting parallel. It's very true. It granted. It was the Walt Disney version of it. But it was it certainly it certainly was the same basic control. He was carrying just like Stalin style in just Persian all of his enemies. You know, if you got in the way of styling, you know, you ended up dead his first, two wise is doctor who he told things to you know, he he just went crazy. The great purge was basically show trials to put anybody to death that either disagreed with America challenging politically. And that's how did it FDR. Did it by what packing the supreme court, right? What happened is my nineteen thirty six he had worried, you know, there's an election coming. So you know, he sought to people were getting a little bit weary of the new deal. So he came out with the sec. New deal. It also wasn't working to the extent that he thought. Okay. So well, all of this was going on in Europe is great war is brewing. You know? He's soon. Europe's war. We're going to do our thing Ren trouble. We're staying out of it. So if this was great a second new deal must be better so starts within, you know, implement the second new deal, and they start to realize that substantial portions of it were unconstitutional. So the he had to pack the supreme court to see if you get it passed, and it was I mean, he was really really fiddling with things I mean, tremendous amounts, and I know in the history books. History books say a lot of things I know the history books paid him as this wonderful magical genie of economic success. He wasn't there was an economic failure. People were they were surviving. And that was about it that was about all they were doing and unless we got into that war and started to move some goods and services. We're you know, we're we're we're still going to see in the new deal for until his death. I mean, it was it was it was it was a Qatar. Because atrophy how did he use the trading with the enemy act to gain more power? Lend lease. This plane trading trading with the enemy act. Well, again, when he did was he was just an attempt to bolster the economy in the same was the same thing with the with the Lend Lease program. He was moving munitions and goods and services to the the the the access powers, and he was getting into the into our allies, you know, free France, including eventually this is Soviet Union. So that we could win and they were just running up the cash register to be paid back later time. So there's you know, there's there's a lot going on here. I mean, he started. So he had to do that. Because you started to realize new deal was not working. So there was there was a lot going on economically in in our country and their came to a point where he knew that we had to get into this war. Despise. Indeed in you know, we have spies too. I know I know that sounds terrible. We do all countries that have it. I'm we have spies to our spies in Germany were starting to tell us their finishing heavy-water experiments and with the veto rockets to carry the nuclear weapons to authorities in the globe. We'd be speaking German right now. I mean, they were on the brink. So we had to get into this more for economic reasons. And for other reasons, so there's a great catalyst here. What's going on fascinating time in history scary time in history. So in the book, you argue as many have that that FDR new a Japanese attack on the US was coming. The only question was when. But then the question is did he did he sort of make it happen? Did he let it happen? Or was he just sort of glad it happened? I see in my book that I get the probably the grays war president we ever had. And that's because he just loved war. He did everything to make World War Two happening. I'm gonna catch flack for that. But you know, what the words too bad? It's true. All right. The Japanese were there Hoyle debtor nation, meaning they don't create enough oil to run with they have to do in their country. So they're getting oil from us. They were coming off a huge war with China made in the last thing they wanted was to go to war against us. So they were trying to negotiate and negotiate. And what happened was we shut up the oil spigot on them which forced them to go island hopping we'd already broken the Japanese communication code. So what happened was a civil war happened in Japan. Japan took over there. No longer negotiating now. They're gonna take they're going to get oil by force. So it forced them in a situation to go island hopping. Okay. So that's what happened in the Pacific is far as Germany is concerned. And I'm not taking our enemies part. Trust me. Okay. I stars as far as Germany's concern, Germany is a food debtor nation meetings. They don't create enough food to feed themselves. So we set up blockades around around Germany. So we couldn't we couldn't see them food. So you see these amazing photos of people in concentration camps, which is tremendously horrible. You know to make a decision. Do. I see my soldiers or do I feed my prisoners? So that's the other side of the history that people don't really get. We had already broken the Japanese codes. I had a conversation about this with Oliver Stone twenty thirteen he came out with a series the other side of district. I believe a DVD. Yes. Yes. He came on Easter the exact same thing. And this book was was in the middle of writing this back. Then researching it at least is I do all my own research. And you know, he came up with his own research to substantiate the same thing. So it wasn't a matter of if it was just a matter of when it had to happen. And so again, a did he let it happen? Did he well I part I suppose he was sort of they were priding the Japanese maybe cornering them a little bit. But how much knowledge do you think he had? Of the actual attack. It's difficult to sell. I know they had at least a weeks and all of this and the aircraft carriers mysteriously went out of Pearl Harbor. So they were not it for her role in the attack, which is a little suspicious aircraft carriers tend to be a pretty. Pretty unnecessary commodity in a world like that in every war, actually. So you know, they had to spare them. So they left the harbour if I'm wrong. Sorry. But I I can't imagine a situation where you would be taking aircraft carriers an order them away from a place that you're supposed to be protecting. So it was a pretty good evidence to support that, you know, the same to support second collusion that they definitely had as a matter of fact, the history channel broke it. I think last year I was watching something and the history channel, they even said, they had uncovered documents internal documents, which I didn't find the archive the suggests that that very thing. It's the codes were broken. And I thought wow. Hey, look at that. You know, I I knew I got it. Right. But I didn't know how right. I got it. So I was right on the money was right? But as you as you may great pains to point out, and you just mentioned this earlier that the Germans and their V T V two rocket program almost they were getting close to being able to deliver nuclear bombs and. We had the United States not gotten in. When they did it may have been too late and imagine nuclear weapons attached to those v two rockets raining down on on England. You know, it's incredible. It's just absolutely incredible. When you think about the situation. You know, America's economic chaos. They know they have to get into this war for many reasons to spark the economy as well. And it was just in the he hid FDR was putting a real bad situation. And you know, in the first chapter of my book, I paint after the kind of a villain and a half to do that to set up the murder. So I apologize in advance for anybody who reads that and get your enough, but FDR had to sell our country on this war. And I believe he had to sacrifice Pearl Harbor and alleged that I know it's a terrible thing to say. But I think that's that's how it happened in order to galvanize public support, right? Yeah. Because he had already been saying this is Europe's worthy. Europe's were well between the the the horrible economy, which is not doing anything and the necessary time to get into the war coming through our spies. He knew it was time to very gut wrenching decision. Very gut wrenching decision. So that that's that's how that came to pass before we get into the US in World War Two and FDR's relationship with hill. And then later Stalin just talked to me a little bit about sort of the enemy's list that he had already cultivated through the overregulation and and with with the big corporations in the United States. Oh boy. This guy had you know there were enemy. He hated money. You really didn't affect your confidence as much gold as he get his hands on. So, you know, he really anybody who was interested in industry or making money was definitely not his friend. I mean, he really pissed off some powerful people. I'll run through the list here. The ones that I came up with the DuPont family, George Eastman from Eastman, Kodak, Harvey Firestone. Same little Colgate. Colgate. Toothpaste, Henry Ford steelhead Henry Frick, the Heinz family the Hilton family who had hotels, the Mellon family who was in charge of the World Bank's William taught me. It was the president of Liberia and even Robert Woodruff who is the chairman of the board Coca Cola. I mean, these people would have done anything to get this guy out of power because he was costing them millions of dollars not only in production. But in. Personal wealth. So he he certainly had some some enemies and here we're starting to get into the motive of murder, and is with all of my books. I run all the suspects or motives means and opportunity to come up with the person or people connected to this.

Sorta fish couldn't get out. And then that would collect debris, which kind of makes spillway not a spillway and they lowered the dam to build a road to make it more convenient for people going from the railroad station to the con- cottages on the lake.

"Those who may suffer from accidents and provide small pensions for those needing help in old age. This was actually the first of its kind the influence of his father and all those that encouraged him during his lifetime pushed Andrew to create as many libraries as possible after creating a public library back in his hometown of done firm Lynn and one in allegany. He went on to create an entire public library system in Pittsburgh. Eventually, he helped to build nearly three thousand public libraries throughout the country. In addition to the Carnegie relief fund, he also created the Carnegie done firm Lynn trust. The Carnegie trust for the universities of Scotland and Manhattan's music hall, which we know today as Carnegie Hall, you may know of his most famous school now known as Carnegie Mellon University. It originally started as a trade school in nineteen hundred after Andrew donated a huge sum for the schools engineering program, it became Carnegie tech in nineteen to he founded the Carnegie institution to fund scientific research and established a pension fund for teachers with a ten million dollar donation. He'd made the transition from industrialised tycoon to a philanthropic madman, but his philanthropic efforts, though they were huge, might not have been his biggest achievement. Andrew was the first to call for a league of nations and later established the Carnegie Endowment for international peace in nineteen ten to hasten the abolition of war. He funded the building of the Hague palace of peace in the Netherlands, which now houses the world court. The court was created to end World War One award that deeply disturbed Andrew along time, pacifist during the last year of his life. Andrew was bedridden and plagued with influenza. He lived comfortably in a six storey block long mansion, but his health was fading fast. It was time to close an old wound before it was too late. Andrew summoned his longtime secretary, James bridge to give a message to Andrews former partner in crime. Henry Frick the two hadn't spoken in over twenty years in his message to Frick Andrew requested that the two of them in their old age air their grievances and make up for everything they done to each other freak wasn't buying it in fricks infamous words. He told bridge quote, yes, you can tell Carnegie, I'll meet him, tell him. I'll see him in hell where we both are going even if he couldn't make amends. On a personal level, he was able to see his country Megan. Men's on an international one, even though his efforts against the war were in vain. Andrew lived long enough to witness the treaty of or Cy and the end of World War One on June twenty eighth nineteen nineteen. Just two months later on August eleventh, Andrew died from pneumonia complications. He was eighty one years old. He'd given away over three hundred fifty million dollars the equivalent of over seventy six billion dollars. Now, despite his best efforts, he wasn't able to give away all of his money. But his wife Louise went on to live another twenty seven years in kept making donations. He left his wife, small cash gift, their Manhattan townhouse and Skibo castle in Scotland. He left his daughter of small trust and walled. This probably allowed them to live comfortably. The eventually had to sell their town home. Andrew Carnegie left the world with a mixed legacy. He rebuilt America and helped usher in the industrial revolution, but he did so on the backs of underpaid labourers. He gave most of his money away to found institutions that would help give people the tools they needed to succeed. But only after his factories had left countless men dead through careless accidents and by gunfire. What he did leave behind is noise inspiring. But the idea of the innovative philanthropic billionaire continues to resonate today with both the good and the ill that come with it and Andrew Carnegie was for better or for worse. The blueprint for that archetype. There are many buildings. Many institutions, many companies, and even a city that continued to bear his name today that is money. He could have decided to hoard within his family passing down that wealth through the generations. If nothing else we are lucky then that Andrew truly believed a man who dies rich, dies, disgraced.
